Teri SloatNarrative Art and Landscape
I have two very different needs when I do my art. One is to be outside painting our landscapes and the other is to drift into scenes floating through my mind which, when put to paper or canvas, tend to take me to a more imaginary place. I am a storyteller, picture book writer and illustrator. The works you see at Sonoma Eyeworks come from images and my own mythology that bubble up from somewhere deep inside.

I love my personal clients, and am pleased that over the last few years that my work is going into more and more hospitals and clinics, including our own Santa Rosa Sutter Hospital, Sonoma West Medical Center, Boston Children’s Hospital, and Central Valley Hospital.

François Jerins, A resident of Sonoma County, his interests in photography, computer technology and travel brought him to a creative crossroad. Born in Germany, François moved to the East Coast as a youth. Living in New York City, helped shape his ongoing quest to observe and learn from the diverse variety of cultures that surrounded him.

As an adult, in San Francisco, he worked through a camera lens for KGO/ABC and KPIX/CBS, and was able to observe people and places with a creative eye. Using his original photographs, he adds additional color and texture to the images. His computer becomes not only his darkroom but his palette and canvas.

He prints his work on 100 year old archival paper.

STACEY SCHUETT — Mixed Media Paintings | www.staceyschuett.com

As an artist, I'm interested in noticing minutiae…the small details of living. Hidden things draw my attention: overlooked creatures, half-present memories, the wavering silhouette of what might or might not be true.

I work with acrylic paint and gouache and found materials on a prepared surface, usually paper or wooden panel. Sometimes I use collage elements or a rough underpainting to increase the surface texture. As a kid, I loved to look at paintings that had a caked-on quality or a fluid, haphazard appearance. These days, I build as much as paint my pieces, and aim to give them a luminous quality.

kathrynkKathryn Kelsey work reflects archetypal discoveries, images from nature, or cultural symbols; balancing  psychology, philosophy, spirituality, and environmental themes.  My process starts with thoughtful color and paper selection applied to canvas or paper supports, to develop a design that may include other natural or man made elements. These images will be worked and reworked to establish challenging compositions that evoke chaos and harmony and thought provoking themes.
